Our first 2 of 3 classes were a success. Had a good turnout. Everyone enjoyed the class' & several stuck around with personal camera questions for the club members that were present. One class left. Hope to see you there.

Last to come!  

March 25th is editing using several programs from purchased to free on the web. As with the first 2 this one has also been updated and improved. The cost is still only $10 per person. Club members will be on hand to answer questions and help with your personal camera questions after the presentation. So please bring your camera.

Classes are at the Flint Farmers Market. Saturdays, 9:30 am to 11:30 am. In the Demo Kitchen on the north end ground floor.

We will be visiting "The Detroit Model Railroad Club" again this year. April 6th. This will take the place of our regular meeting that would have been April 13th. Hope to see you all there!

Lensmen Meetings


Our regular meetings are at the Flint Farmers Market in downtown Flint.  We meet from 6:30 - 8:30 pm., September through May, on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, unless otherwise announced.  The Farmers Market is located at 300 E. First Street, and parking is in the parking lot at the corner of E. Second Street and Stevens Street.  The door to use is at the top of the ramp located at the truck dock in the south east corner (it is not one of the four public entrances). The north stairway entrance is also available for entery. 
**Note:  due to security issues the door will be locked shortly after 6:30 pm, so you must be there by then if you plan to attend a meeting.

Everyone is welcome, from amateur to professional, and you do not have to be a member to attend.

Photos need to be grouped together by categories for ease of loading to computer. Each member is encouraged to elaborate on there photos but not required ( what inspired them to take the photo, where, when & how, any special editing or procedures used to take the photo). They can ask other members for tips on improving their photos as well.
